Join an honoured circle of Visionary Partners
A bequest to Macular Disease Foundation Australia is a meaningful way to make a lasting impact on the eye health and the lives of future generations. By leaving a gift in your Will, you will join an honoured circle known as Visionary Partners.
A Visionary Partner gift allows us a considerable degree of flexibility and security in planning for the future so we can continue to support our community.
By including a gift in your Will, you are joining a family of honoured supporters that we call Visionary Partners.
Visionary Partners share a common bond. They want a future where no one unnecessarily loses their sight to macular disease.
As a Visionary Partner, you’ll receive:
- a certificate of appreciation
- updates and breaking news via our Vision Voice newsletter
- invitations to exclusive events to meet MDFA staff, Board members, researchers and other like-minded supporters
- acknowledgement in our Visionary Partners Honour Roll in our Annual Report.
Of course, if you wish to remain anonymous, this will be respected.
How your bequest will make a difference
We are committed to reaching more Australians living with or at risk of macular disease. We want to build a better understanding of macular disease and to increase awareness of risk, prevention and treatment. We do this through the following four pillars of work.
Through the generous support of Australians like you, we have been able to invest millions into research projects since 2011. We have become the largest non-government source of research funding into macular disease in Australia.
Your gift can directly support future research of world-leading Australian researchers who aim to reduce the incidence and impact of macular disease. And, of course, ultimately find a cure.
Prevention and early detection
With 8.5m Australians over the age of 50 at risk of or living with macular disease, your gift can help reach those at risk through education and awareness campaigns.
Supports and services
Living with macular disease can be challenging.
Your gift can help us to continue to deliver individual support to thousands of Australians.
Faye Grant included Macular Disease Foundation in her Will. That generous gift is now funding vital, innovative research into macular disease.
We represent the community to ensure all Australians can access treatment for macular disease and resources. Your gift can help us raise the united voice of the growing macular disease community. Advocacy can make lasting change for better and fairer access to government support and affordable treatment.
